An investment of just under $100,000 by the NSW Government is set to improve the quality of life of Blayney residents by providing better accessibility.

The Blayney pool is know disabled-access friendly through the installation of a motorized adult change room and pool-pod, helping create a leisure environment suitable for all patrons.

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole has congratulated Blayney Council for making their CentrePoint Sport & Leisure complex a more inclusive place:

 “I congratulate Blayney Council on providing a more accessible facility to their community, with the combination of a change room and a pool pod  which will allow persons with a disability to enjoy this wonderful complex,”  Mr Toole said.

The work was completed as a result of a $98,210 grant via the NSW Governments Stronger Country Community Fund. 

Blayney Mayor Scott Ferguson said the investment would positively affect the lives of many people in the area.

“We have a number of people in our extended community who need these facilities and we expect many will truly benefit from them” he said.

The Stronger Country Communities Fund is a great program designed to assist community groups and councils pursue initiatives which enhance their organisations and local infrastructure in a partnership with the NSW Government.
